The Herds of Lamar Valley


Lamar Valley supports a remnant of the vast wildlife herds that once roamed North America.  Here the particular mix of conditions

creates ideal habitat for elk and bison.  The wide, open valley makes predators easy to spot.  Tasty sedges border streams and 

damp meadows; forbs and bunch grasses cover slopes.  During Yellowstone's extended winters, temperatures are relatively

moderate at this lower elevation, and snow cover is usually shallow enough to allow foraging. 


Though the scene approximates primitive wilderness, human presence inevitably alters the balance.  Use binoculars and telephoto

lenses.  Do not disturb the animals to get a closer picture.  


The chance of sighting large herds depends on the season.  In midsummer the greatest number of elk and bison are in the mountains

on either side of the valley.
